Fuel cells can provide a clean, consistent source of electricity and can be easily relied on as a sole power source, unlike some other renewable energy sources, such as solar energy and wind power. Fuel cells convert energy from a fuel (usually hydrogen) into electricity, and advances in technology are bringing down costs. Fuel cells can use hydrogen produced from renewable electricity sources or be powered by other fuels, such as natural gas. They are basically emission-free, quiet and efficient, and very reliable.
In certain states, where your kWh is in the 15 cent range, fuel cells can cut your total energy costs in half. Fuel Cells serve as both standby and primary power sources for a growing number of businesses. As a backup in the event of electric grid failure, they can start quickly and are very reliable. Costs are comparable, if not better, than traditional backup power. For example, Fuel Cells can generate more energy than diesel generators and are emission-free and far more efficient. Fuel cells can also meet daily needs and provide consistent, high-quality power regardless of electric grid disruptions.
The Trowbridge Energy Group represents several top tier fuel cell makers. The business case for fuel cells is growing. The main reason for this success is the increasing investment by the private sector and business community.
Today, fuel cells are utilizing domestically produced natural gas to power to retail stores, data centers, production sites and other company facilities, greatly reducing emissions and doing so at a cost that cuts local electric grid rates in half in some states. By producing power onsite, facilities can continue their essential operations, even when grid power goes down.
Let the Trowbridge Energy Group study and assess your company's energy needs. We'll create a plan that will transform your energy consumption and save you money.
